SHABWA, April 14—Fifty families have been displaced from Al-Ain district of Shabwa over the past week in clashes between two local tribes.
Violent clashes broke out between the Al-Ahwal and Al-Aslm tribes last Tuesday, leaving six people dead including two women. Four others were injured.
Zabin Atia, a journalist in Shabwa, said that there are humanitarian concerns as the displaced families have no access to food supplies.
The fighting was sparked by the killing of an Al-Aslm tribal sheikh by members of the rival tribe in Huraib market, according to Atia.
